The New Trays are Here!

PTL! Highland Park Cafeteria in Casa Linda finally got its new trays.  HPC is one of our favorite places to dine after church.  For months they’ve been touting “we’re getting new trays”.  They finally arrived a few weeks ago, and just in time to participate in the one of the most creative and interesting chef benefit events I have ever heard of.  It’s the brainchild of Matt McCallister–former Executive Chef of Stephan Pyles Restaurant in the Arts District.  It’s called “Chefs for Farmers”, and Matt organized the event last year to raise awareness for the importance of using local ingredients, and to support the farms and farmers in the Dallas-Fort Worth/North Texas area.  So, coming up on March 13th, a bunch of great chefs will serve their dishes “on the line” at HPC to raise money for the cause.  Cool.

The all-star team of Dallas’ top chefs includes Janice Provost and Chad Hauser (Parigi), John Tesar, Matt McCallister, Dan Landsberg (Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa), Tim Byres (Smoke), Randall Copeland and Nathan Tate (Ava), Scott Romano (Charlie Palmer) Brian C. Luscher (The Grape), J. Chastain (The Second Floor), Jack Perkins (Maple and Motor), Justin Fourton and Diane Fourton (Pecan Lodge), and Rick Griggs (former pastry chef of Abacus.  (Side note:  bless the chefs who work hard 24/7 and give their talents so selflessly to great causes in the area.  Many of the fine chefs above will also be participating in Savor Dallas, March 18-19).

The “Chefs for Farmers” feast begins at 4pm on Sunday March 13th, as each guest picks up a tray and walks the line. Cost is $85 per person excluding tax and service fee.  A portion of the proceeds also benefits The Family Place, the largest family violence service provider in the Dallas area.  To purchase tickets go to www.chefsforfarmers.com or www.prekindle.com. Highland Park Cafeteria is located at 1200 North Buckner Boulevard, Dallas, TX 75218 in Casa Linda.

Big time wining and dining with Chef Tim Byres

Just ask anyone who has been to the hip and happening Belmont Hotel and you’ll likely hear from a fan of Smoke. Tim Byres, formerly executive chef at Stephan Pyles, executive sous chef at the Mansion, and his own restaurant Standard certainly knows his way around the kitchen and loves to make great things happen with hardwood and smoke. You have an opportunity to get first-hand experience and a great wine dinner to boot if you join me on Thursday February 25th for the next “Dinner Club with Jim White” special event at Smoke.
